Those cars were so small and simple! Is it any wonder why 40 years ago there were at least as many car models getting 30+ mpg as there are now? An FF1 was 2000 lbs. of STEEL. Today's "subcompacts" are 3000 lbs. of PLASTIC! My dad's '71 1300G wagon got 36 mpg. No car he has owned since has done that! If you ask me, if cars were getting that mileage 40 years ago, there's no excuse, with today's technology, for today's small cars not to do at least that well!
